Democrats claim that they want to get beyond the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal, but do they really? They claim that their agenda has been hijacked by Weiner and the endless shirtless and weiner pics. However, one might say that was a good thing for Democrats. Did they really want to discuss jobs, the economy, debt reduction and the highest misery index in 28 years?
Weiner may be gone, but the lasting stain on the Democrat party remains. Weinergate is not an isolated occurrence when it comes to the Democrat party and politics. Sure the naked pics of Weiner’s weiner were a bit much, but sooner or later when one makes politics their religion, it’s only a matter of time before the power goes to their head.

“Political expression has obviously declined to
depths formerly unexplored until now. This
particular ‘representative’ is representing
himself in ways rational folks would not. It
might be said that ‘POWER’ has gone to his head!”
From The Hill:
With Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) all but out the door, Democrats have wasted no time trying to shift the conversation back to the economy, healthcare and other issues of greater national consequence.
Party leaders think they have a winning hand in their opposition to GOP proposals to overhaul Medicare, privatize Social Security and slash funding for safety-net programs amid a lingering unemployment crisis.
Democrat policies have failed on the economy as we remain at 9.1% unemployment. Democrats would love their to be distractions of anything than that what the American people face presently. Look for another Weinergate to distract, but this time it will be one where they leave their clothes on.
